Ingredients for Frosting:
-8 oz. cream cheese, softened

Process for Bars:
1. Cream together butter and sugar.
2. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well.
3. Add in sour cream and bananas (broken into chunks).
4. Beat in baking soda and salt.
5. Add flour.
6. Beat until smooth.
7. Spread batter into a greased 15 x 10 x 1 inch baking pan or 9 x 13 inch baking dish.  {I used a 9 x 13.}
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
9. Let cool completely.
Process for Frosting:
1. Add cream cheese, butter and vanilla to mixer bowl.
2. Add powdered sugar.
